Join the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in celebrating National Nutrition Month® and Fuel for the Future®! This year’s theme encourages people to consider their future health and how nutrition can impact it.
Many people plan for the future regarding finances, family, careers, and personal goals. However, nutrition and health aren’t always at the forefront when thinking about where we will be five, ten, or even 20 years from now. Yet, how we treat ourselves today regarding nutrition and health behaviors does matter. Foods like fruit, vegetables, and whole grains provide valuable nutrients that can protect against some diseases, especially those impacted by diets, like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers.
So, give your health some consideration next time you set your goals. Fuel your future and maintain a healthy self by:
- Purchasing ingredients with the environment in mind.
- Visiting a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).
- Staying nourished and saving money.
- Eating a variety of foods from all food groups.
- Making tasty foods at home.
